Does Cheap Laundry Detergent Work as Well as Expensive Brands?
Money-Saving Laundry Tips. Here are my money saving tips for doing laundry: Always use cold water, except for towels and underwear. Use the cheapest detergent you can buy. I stick with liquid Purex or any liquid store brand that’s on sale. I never buy the kind with bleach because it does fade and wear clothes faster. Invest in a pretreat product.
